In this training session we will cover everything you need to know as a Power BI administrator or Power BI responsible. We will use theory and practice to learn concepts and apply them.
We will provision a Power BI environment; we will look at the main settings and figure out which of them are important and how they should be set according to best practices. We will then setup Power BI premium and look through the administration options when it comes to dedicated capacity. We will investigate the role of the Enterprise Gateway, set it up, configure it and talk about how to administer it. We will look at Power BI governance and see how you can set governance strategy, create processes and roles and lastly but not least how you can monitor your Power BI environment.
